Join hundreds of Junior High and High School youth in protesting Taco Bell!
Demand that Taco Bell tomato pickers are paid a living wage!
This summer, hundreds of Junior High and High School youth are converging on Orange County for a social justice summer camp. As part of their camp, they are organizing a protest at Taco Bell's corporate headquarters in Irvine.
Join these youth in calling for a living wage for Taco Bell tomato pickers!
When: Friday, June 28, 3-6p.m.
Where: Taco Bell Corporate Headquarters
17901 Von Karman (at Main) in Irvine
Take the 405 Exit McArthur go RIGHT
Make another RIGHT on MAIN, and another RIGHT on Von Karmen
If you can't make it on Friday call 1-800-TacoBell and demand living wages for farm workers.
Why: By contracting for cheap tomatoes grown and picked by farmworkers paid sub-poverty wages in Florida, Taco Bell contributes significantly to the continued misery of farmworkers and their families. Taco Bell tomato pickers are still earning the same wages they earned twenty years ago, and the median income of farmworkers in Florida, where Taco Bell's tomatoes are harvested, is only ,500. Taco Bell tomato pickers are only asking for a one cent per pound raise. The large corporations that buy Florida tomatoes must step up to their responsibility by demanding, and obtaining, changes in the shameful pay and working conditions suffered by the men and women who pick their tomatoes.
Join youth in calling for fair wages for Taco Bell tomato pickers!
